"Smash" star Megan Hilty told The Huffington Post that the series goes out on a high note, thanks to a big musical number.
"It's me and Katharine McPhee and a bunch of dancers. Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman wrote it -- it's amazing," Hilty said at the Gersh Upfront party in New York City. The song, appropriately titled "Big Finish," caps the two-hour series finale airing Sunday, May 26 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
"Of course I'm sad that I won't get to work with all these amazing people, but I learned a long time ago that there are a lot of things out of my control. This is just one of them," Hilty said of the network's decision to cancel "Smash" last week . "All I can really do is be grateful for the time I had and all these amazing people and look to the next thing."
Hilty's character, Ivy Lynn, took the role of Marilyn Monroe in "Bombshell" and is well on her way to the Tonys. But the May 11 episode featured Ivy getting some unexpected news: She's pregnant.
"I was very happy with that story because it's a very delicate subject," she said. "I was really happy with how they ended the whole series." Hilty added that she thinks fans will also be satisfied with the way the show ends.
"I'm not speaking out of turn because I read something Josh Safran said in an interview," she said. "He wrote it so that it could be possibly the series finale. I think people will be satisfied with it. There are no major cliffhangers and it could have continued."
"Smash" will air its two-hour series finale on Sunday, May 26 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
